Wipe wood daily with a cotton cloth to remove dust. Avoid harsh soaps and chemicals. Sponge with a mild solution of water and soap (dish washing liquid). Using mostly the foam is recommended. Over time the wood will absorb more of the soap making the furniture repellent to marks and staining. These care suggestions however may not be considered as a guarantee against stains. Do not place on a carpet as the moisture may seep and cause stains. Glass is fragile, handle with care.
